The first Pinoy Biggest Loser will win ₱1 million cash prize, a newly furnished condominium from DMCI Homes, a Vespa scooter, a 40-inch Sony Bravia Internet TV, Whirlpool appliances, and a lifetime gym membership with Fitness First. The second placer will take home a ₱500,000 cash prize, a Vespa scooter, Whirlpool appliances, and one-year Fitness First membership. Finally, the third placer will win a ₱300,000 cash prize, a Vespa scooter, Fujidenzo Home Appliances, and a one-year Fitness First membership.
In our opinion, ABS-CBN could have done better with the prizes, of course. Next time, to make things more exciting, they should give away cars or SUVs instead of tawdry scooters. Lol. But like what the Fab Five have always said, winning back their health, self-respect, and self confidence are already prizes in their own way; as a matter of fact, they are priceless. Just check out the photo above and tell us if you can actually tell that these people have been obese in the not-so-distant past? In fact, after thorough examinations at the St. Luke’s Medical Center, it was revealed that the Biggest Loser Fab Five are indeed already in perfect health.
But among these five contestants, our favourite are the two girls, Angela Lupangco (front, left) and Hazel Chua (front, right). Raffy Tan (far left) is okay, too, but Art Mendoza (center) and Larry Martin (far right) seem to have aged significantly, don’t you think? Maybe they lost too much weight? We don’t know, but it is quite clear that Angela and Hazel, on the contrary, are glowing big time.

So how do these girls stack up against each other? Angela Lupancgo said she joined the competition in order to lose the excess fat that is preventing her from conceiving a child. True enough, they found out at St. Luke’s that she is now ovulating. Not only that, she has also become much slimmer and worlds away prettier!
So who’s our bet? We’re choosing Hazel over Angela, simply because she’s finally getting a start on life 🙂 How about you guys?
